Kitten Forever reveal ‘Temple’ from upcoming album

Kitten Forever Temple still

The feminist punk trio Kitten Forever will be joining Babes in Toyland on their North American Fall Tour (tour dates below). Leading up to the tour, they have announced the new album ‘7 Hearts will be released via Atlas Chair on March 25, 2016 on vinyl/digital (pre-sale here). You can watch the video for the album’s first track Temple via YouTube below.


Kitten Forever approached their third full-length album, ‘7 Hearts,’ with a big sister attitude; it’s wild and hurt with chin held high. Themes of heartbreak, illness, fear, and friendship develop through personal and interpersonal metamorphosis and result in dichotomies of isolation and intimacy, dense sunlight and glittery darkness. Members Liz Elton, Corrie Harrigan, and Laura Larson continue ritual of regularly trading off on all instruments, pushing their versatility of multi-faceted songwriting and individual lyrical development they used on ‘Pressure’. Recorded and mixed by Matt Castore at A Harder Commune Studios in St. Paul, MN and mastered by the accomplished Sarah Register, ‘7 Hearts’ is at once caustic, illuminating, fierce, and tender.

15 tracks in just under 30 minutes, the album rapid fire transmutes common experiences and emotions into something of great value, a validation of so many things you feel but don’t say. If Pressure’ was feminist sleepovers, roller discos, and luster, ‘7 Hearts is a bottle rocket in the dark.

You can see their live performance of Temple for The Lowertown Line HERE. The Minneapolis-based band’s roots are formed first and foremost in friendship and secondly in feminism. Taking inspiration from riot grrrl, post-punk, and hardcore, Kitten Forever’s lo-fi stripped down aesthetic is both personal and tongue-in-cheek; aggressive and disco.
